2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968) - With its ground-breaking special effects, dazzling cinematography and gloriously sublime film score, Stanley Kubrick’s monumental opus changed the way science fiction movies were made - and viewed - forever. From its opening sequence set in a prehistoric African savannah to its final ambiguous scene of a "rebirth" in outer space, this is a film that has excited curiosity and ignited imaginations like no other film before - and, perhaps, since. Fifty years later, Douglas Trumbull's Oscar-winning special effects still stun and awe and Kubrick's masterpiece retains the power to mesmerise and inspire.
Few films make us think about who we are, where we came from, and where we're going...
Few works in cinema can be described as religious experiences...
When viewed in a large-screen movie theatre rather than on your television, 2001 A Space Odyssey is one of them.

MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON
Moscow on the Hudson

Doors open 60 minutes before show time.
Tickets: $5.00

MOSCOW ON THE HUDSON (1984) - Director Paul Mazursky's empathetic tale delivers a hilarious and touching portrait of a shy Russian circus musician who defects to the U.S. and discovers that life in the Free World just might not live up to his expectations. Far from a dated Cold War period piece, the film retains its immediacy and relevance due both to Mazursky's three-dimensional approach to the immigrant experience in America, and to Robin William's star turn as saxophone player Vladimir Ivanoff. Taking on a role which could easily have devolved into a cartoon, the young comedian - fresh from his Mork and Mindy TV success - put in over a year of study of both the Russian language and the saxophone before stepping in front of Mazursky's cameras. The result was a sensitive and stellar performance that demonstrated Williams’ immense range as a dramatic actor and paved the way for the memorable performances he would deliver over the years.

LUDOVICO EINAUDI - The most celebrated European pianist and composer in contemporary classical music, Einaudi has contributed to the soundtracks of major films including Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan and Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar. A master craftsman and performer, he’s also become a concert sensation. He was the first classical pianist to reach the top 15 on the UK album charts, and last year he expanded his sonic purview with Elements, a project for piano, electronics, and orchestra that evokes the natural world with music that germinates from cellular melodic fragments - music he brings to this performance.

Philip Glass and the Kronos Quartet: DRACULA - As part of Philip Glass' 80th birthday celebration, the GRAMMY-winning, Bay Area based Kronos Quartet and the composer himself perform his score to accompany a screening of Tod Browning’s iconic 1931 horror classic Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi. Called “one of Glass' most lyrical, moving works” by Billboard, his Dracula score was commissioned in 1999 for the Universal home video release of the film, employing keyboards played by the composer, conducting and additional keyboards by longtime Glass collaborator Michael Reisman, and strings by the Kronos Quartet. Formed by violinist David Harrington in 1973, Kronos is the most highly regarded performing ensemble devoted to contemporary composition.

BUDDY GUY - An ace session player for Chess Records throughout the 1960s who backed Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson and Koko Taylor, this blues guitar legend came to define second-generation Chicago blues with his wildly exuberant performances and incendiary guitar playing. His influence was profound across the Atlantic, where British blues lovers like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page absorbed his style. A testament to his lasting influence, Guy received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 GRAMMY awards and was a 2005 inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Buddy Guy remains an iconic force on guitar whose incandescent solos reveal the searing, uninhibited soul of the blues.
